    The editor and his contributors take an international perspective on the links between land use, development and transport and present the latest thinking, the theory and practice of these links. Authors from six countries - all experts in this area - have been commissioned to write chapters on the theoretical debates and more practical issues, via the use of detailed case studies.

    Introduction. The theoretical and empirical links between transport and urban development. Case studies of transport and development. Private investment and development effects in the USA. Index.

    'The book is of interest to readers who want a general overview of the subjects discussed without going into too much detail. It contains some lessons for researchers in the field of transport economics and transport management.' - Urban Studies

    'All in all, this is a stimulating collection of papers on a subject that has suddenly moved into the core of 1990's planning practice, and in this light is a must for all planning department libraries, and required reading for planning practitioners.' - Planning Practice and Research
